Comag Matamata Swifts began slowly in Saturday’s WaiBOP Premiership match against Taupo and fell behind on the quarter hour. The normally reliable Swifts defense allowed the visitors a free header which was comfortably looped home.

There was little in the way of attacking inspiration from either side throughout the remainder of the first half, but the visitors doubled their lead ten minutes after the break when they finished clinically from a second Swifts defensive error.

Matamata briefly threatened a late rally when Jamie Baxter slipped home from the penalty spot with 20 minutes remaining, after Pete Shannon had been clipped in the box, but a third goal from the visitors late on sealed the result.
